Start your adventure with a convenient pickup from your hotel in a 4x4 vehicle and head southeast of the city center to the desert. On a clear day, admire the Hajjar Mountains. After a 1-hour drive, stop for your exciting desert activities. Before starting your quad bike adventure, listen to your guide as he gives a full briefing with safety instructions.

We loved the drive with the SUV in the dunes and driving the buggies. The rest was meh. The camel ride was about 5 minutes long and the camels were really old and unhappy. The sandboarding was also a bit lame. Each person was allowed to go once. We were discouraged from using the straps on the board as we are not “athletes”. I would also add that our driver was a bit of a tough character and a bit on the grumpy side. He openly expressed judgments towards European family values as well. Not exactly cool.

Best of the booking sites I'd looked at. I really like the chat function that GetYourGuide has... Because I booked a tour the day before, I got in touch for details of my pick up location. They were very quick to help me and put me in touch with the local excursion company. I also really recommend Excursion Point Tourism in Dubai and if you can, ask for Ismail as your guide! He's super friendly and easy going and can tell you so much about the beautiful desert and about the Dubai. Ismail has been the best tour guide experience we've had!

Qamar - this was amazing! The sand dune ride was epic and the sand boarding was super funny! The quad bikes were good fun and you get loads of time on them. Finished of all with a friendly camel ride. Very professional and friendly service. Would do it again next time we are here :)
